Long Description:
Weathered 15th century gargoyles arount the west tower of St Bartholomew's church, Hognaston.

"The base of the tower with its three lancet windows, its shallow buttresses, and the nave arch suggest a transition from Norman to Early English in style, from 1200, a little later than the doorway and font. The two upper floors are of a different stonework and were most likely re­built with the massive supporting buttress in the late 15th century."
